    I am so sorry for your lost. Brenda was such fun in high school. Always loved her long black hair, so straight and perfect. She really enjoyed twirling.

    Mrs. Barbara, Hilda, and Jerietta. I am heart broken to hear of Brenda passing! I’m even more heart broken that I won’t be here for the family gathering and funeral! We are leaving on vacation Sunday morning! I wanted y’all to know that I always thought that Brenda was sure a sweet and precious person! She always had that little silly and funny personality! As hard as it is to lose her, we can all be comforted that she is seeing the glory of God now, and all the pain and struggles are gone! You all are in my prayers!

    Mrs. Abshire, Hilda and Jerietta, I am so very sorry for the loss of Brenda. She was the very first friend I made when I moved to Hamshire in the 4th grade. She was always fun to be around and never met a stranger. I remember how she looked like a little wind-up doll when she would twirl her baton. She was so talented and graceful! She made our time together such a delight! There will always be a special place in my heart for her and I want you all to know that we love you dearly. I am praying for you guys as well as myself and our YaYas. I know she is in a much better place, with no more pain and agony. May she be carried through the gates of heaven in the arms of our gracious God and Savior. She was a blessing to us all!
